Posture correction with Postureminder
There are countless devices on the market that claim to correct your posture, including products like the iPosture which you wear and vibrates against your skin whenever you slouch to irritate you into standing/sitting up straight, and various posture support braces and garments that aim to constrain your body into good postures.
These are often expensive, and in the case of back support braces that you wear under your clothes, you'll probably need to buy more that one of them.
Here at Postureminder we have fundamental issues with these posture correction "solutions". Whilst they may provide short-term benefits, we believe that they are too uncomfortable and intrusive to use on a regular basis, and that they try to constrain your body too much and encourage you to rigidly adopt a fixed posture.
Most ergonomists and healthcare professionals recognise the vital importance of movement to your musculoskeletal health. Any talk of "correct posture" by these experts is always accompanied by the point that any posture, even a good one, can be damaging if you sit in it without moving about regularly. Constraining yourself with a support brace or iPosture device is not a long-term solution.
Postureminder is the only posture correction solution that helps you do what the posture experts say is healthy.
Postureminder will never encourage you to sit rigidly in a good posture. It only reminds you after you've been sitting in a poor posture for an extended period. You have control over how quickly it provides a reminder that you've been sitting in a damaging posture, so you can adapt it to your needs and working style, but it will never encourage you to sit rigidly.
Indeed, if you sit in bad postures but keep moving around, Postureminder will delay its reminder to you because your movement offsets the fact you're sitting in poor postures. Conversely, if you sit fixed in a good posture for a long period you'll also get a reminder about the importance of moving about. In contrast, posture brace would be constantly irritating you as you moved about, and encouraging you to sit rigidly!
Postureminder's other tools, particularly the break reminders and stretch exercises, combine with the intelligent posture reminders to also encourage movement for the health of your spine (not to mention the rest of your mind and body).
Finally, because Postureminder is far less intrusive and constraining than wearing a brace, so you can use it daily to help you improve your posture and working habits in the long-term.
